Wartime Malta

During the First World War Malta was a vital base of operations and a medical hub which treated wounded soldiers brought here from across the Mediterranean. During the Second World War Malta was besieged for more than two years. More bombs were dropped on the island than on London during the Blitz. In recognition of their bravery and suffering, the people of Malta were awarded the George Cross.


Take a trip though Malta’s history with our Malta timeline video and discover more about the Commission's work on the island.

Follow the story from the outbreak of the First World War, when the island welcomed the injured; through to its strategic role in the Second World War. Learn about the high cost paid by its people and how those lost are still honoured today.
